Helvetia Vineyards and Winery is located in the foothills of the Tualatin Mountains, the northernmost grape growing area in the Willamette Valley, just 25 minutes from Portland. Learn about the soils, how we make the wine, and check out the winery. Tours include an introduction to the soils and micro-climate of the vineyards (terroir) and the history of the people who have inhabited the area. Discussion is followed by a tour of the winery and a tasting of Helvetia Vineyard’s wines along with tribal-caught Columbia River smoked salmon. The tour and tasting lasts approximately one-hour.
